The Gold Cane Palm is one of the most popular and attractive palms with golden stems and yellow-green fronds. Also known as the Butterfly Palm, the leaves curve upwards in multiple stems to create a butterfly look. The Golden Cane Palm is very adaptable and can be grown in full sun to part shade or in a bright spot indoors. It will give any corner a touch of natural and tropical detail.

Here’s how to care for your Golden Cane Palm.
The Golden Cane Palm prefers bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can cause the leaves to turn yellow and drop. If you’re growing your plant indoors, place it near a window that receives bright, filtered light.
Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Water the soil thoroughly and wait for the water to drain through, then empty any excess water sitting in the saucer. Allow the top 3-5cm of soil to dry out before watering again. Reduce watering in the cooler months.
Tip: the top of the soil may look dry but it can be wet beneath, so before watering your plant, dip your finger into the soil to feel the level of moisture. If it feels soggy, wait for a few days and check again. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s important to let the soil dry out slightly between waterings.
Temperature & Humidity
Golden Cane Palm prefers average to warm environments and high humidity. It should be given regular misting, especially during the winter if the humidity is exceptionally dry.
Keep away from drafts of hot and cold air that can harm the plant.
To keep your Golden Cane Palm healthy and happy, fertilise it regularly with a balanced fertiliser. You can use a liquid or granular fertiliser, but be sure to follow the instructions on the label carefully. Too much fertiliser can burn the roots and damage the plant.

Pruning is essential for maintaining the shape and size of your Golden Cane Palm. Use sharp, clean pruning shears to remove any dead or yellowing leaves, as well as any suckers that may be growing from the base of the plant. You can also trim back the tips of the leaves to encourage new growth.
